Sophomores to KEC/Kish College
Our school goal is that 100% of our students, by the time they graduate , are college and/or career ready.  Part of that goal is met by introducing our 10th graders to the courses that KEC offers, most are dual credit, and let them see the campus of a community college.  We will be gathering in the auditorium after 2nd hour on Thursday, November 7 and returning so students can go to their 10th hour class.  Lunch will be provided.

All Seniors attending college next year should be filling out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) that opened on October 1.  If you potentially qualify for grants (funds that you do not have to pay back), this money runs out quickly – so don’t delay. Even if you may not qualify for grants, completing the FAFSA is a requirement for most scholarships. If you have questions, see your school counselor.   https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa
